Great to see this baby being rehabbed. It didn't stand a chance in the wild without its mom. This should never have happened. Too many manatees die every year.

We see manatees in the bay around LBK FL. In one cove there's always a few mom manatees with their little ones. One was so small, and it still had it umbilical cord. It looked like an extra-large football with a paddletail :) How sweet
